Fabulous Friday!


This was a long week. Long, but productive.

♥ I'm pumped full of natural endorphins from working out so much this that I feel so happy I could burst! I honestly think that this was the missing link that I have been needing. Planning out my workouts this week and making them a priority, instead of something that can be crossed off the to-do list worked like a charm. Yesterday I even used my apartment complex's gym (I don't know why it took me so long) and it was fabulous! I will definitely be taking advantage of that more when I cannot make it to my regular gym.

♥ Today I am subbing at a high school I have been wanting to work at for what feels like ages now! It's also where one of my blogging buddies is an English teacher!

♥ I don't have a lot planned for the weekend, but that is okay with me! So far, all I am doing is happy hour tomorrow, farmer's market Saturday morning, work from 11-4, then a client's birthday party at 5pm, then church Sunday morning and the rest of the day will be spent STUDYING and probably cooking chili (perfect weather for it!).

♥ I have two pretty big projects I need to start this week. One is a report on book censorship and the other is on graphic novels. Any experience with either? I chose book censorship because it really interests me, but I don't know where to begin. I know once I get going I will really be able to dig in.

♥ Yesterday in my night class we had an organized debate in class, everyone was split onto two teams. One team had to debate why learning disabilities do not exist and the other had to debate why they do. It was awesome and I was really impressed with the undergrads arguments (they debated why it didn't exist). I had anxiety the entire time though, because we ended up in another room (unexpectedly) and all of my stuff, with my iphone lying out on the desk and my purse underneath it, still in the other room. Apparently I am the only one that has had stuff stolen and is paranoid because nobody else seemed to mind at all! Regardless, it was a great activity that made everyone think.

♥ The result of the debate: grads won. Learning disabilities do exist. ;)

♥ I did this workout yesterday and thought I was going to pass out. Holy freakin cow. It was hard!

♥ That's all I've got folks! What are you plans this weekend?

Interesting, what are the arguments for learning disabilities not existing? :)

Have fun subbing today!

I did my undergrad thesis on book censorship - and I have personal experience with it as a teacher. Let me know how I can help!

Haha, wow, your weekend sounds pretty busy to me! I have absolutely no plans besides the usually watch football, read, and do some cleaning.

I'd be nervous about my stuff being in another room, too!

I'm so excited to hear that working out has been the missing link for you! Yay! Whenever people start working out and Love it I'm like NOW do you see why I do it all the time? It just makes you feel SO GOOD about yourself and gives you lots of energy!

Sounds like a busy but fun weekend! Enjoy!

Amber, I worry about my stuff being stolen, too! Once I was volunteering at the Food Shelf and we left all our belongings in an open room while we went on a tour of the facility--the whole time I was worried about someone stealing my credit cards!! I could not relax.

I'm so proud of you with your workouts!

I've had lots of lovely birthday plans this weekend - there will be a blog post about it next week!

Amber, I am so proud of you and your motivation. I wish I could really take mine from mind and put it into action!
